This guide describes the configuration of a PPTP connection on Windows 7 using the Operating System's built in client.
It is recommended to use OpenVPN to connect to our service. OpenVPN surpasses firewalls and routers easier and is more secure than PPTP. PPTP is considered broken and should really only be used on platforms where OpenVPN is not available.
Instead of setting up PPTP, please follow the corresponding OpenVPN guide.
